In a bull market, when the economy is booming, your stock trading strategy should be to buy fundamentally strong companies, which will (hopefully) earn you big returns — whether you're an investor in Canada or anywhere else in the worldwide stock market. Look for companies with the following characteristics:

  • Earnings that are growing faster than average.

  • Conducting business in a strong sector.

  • Operating in a growing economy.

  • The company's stock is approaching a technical buy signal on its bar chart and is performing better than the average stock with high relative strength.
